Invest in Climate, Invest in Growth Forum
Introduction of ICIG forum in regards to sustainability.
Climate change can cause catastrophic disasters such as floods, drought, and wildfires. These risks can impact asset returns. There is another thing to consider among many. Transitioning to net zero creates regulations and taxes. All asset classes will perform differently depending on how these manage transition risks.
So far, climate change’s impact on asset classes is highlighted by avoiding risks involved with the transition. By contrast, investors can participate in stabilizing climate change and find excellent investment opportunities in traditional and emerging technologies. Some of these opportunities are spearheaded by non-listed companies, such as start-ups seeking private equity funding. All of these are important to be noticed and utilized. Some minor changes can bring an outsized effect on investment returns. Therefore, investing across all asset classes with these considerations can create robust return opportunities for investors. It is the focus of this forum.
The forum aims to study and discuss preparing investment portfolios for climate change. But, more importantly, the forum emphasizes investing in climate and growth and achieving high investment returns.
To this end, the forum will invite experts in industry, technology, and investment related to climate change from the global market to listen to lectures and continue networking with them.
